What’s in a carbon footprint? Stonyfield Farm has decided to find out, as part of its company-wide effort to help reduce climate change.

As part of this endeavor, the New Hampshire-based organic yogurt manufacturer has embarked on a project to map the carbon footprint of its 200 different products.

To do this, Stonyfield Farm is tracking the entire process that each product goes through, from beginning to end, and calculating the resources it takes to create that product.

“We started measuring our carbon footprint back in the early 1990s before the term had even been coined…We were stunned to find out that milk production—that is, on the farm—was the single biggest part of our footprint,” Stonyfield explains on its website.

These days, it uses cutting-edge software by the German software producer, SAP,  which has been hired by Stonyfield Farm’s parent corporation, Danone, to help calculate the figures for the French yogurt maker’s 30,000+ products.
